    Are you sure you got an image that can boot from USB?

    I maybe that your image was not burned correctly, or you are not specifying the boot from a removable drive. If you can not set it up from the boot options menu, try setting the boot priority in your systems bios.

    You .iso image could be damaged as well. Re-download the image file and follow these instructions to create a .iso usb boot drive.

    For Windows:

    http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download

    For ubuntu:

    http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download

    For linux in general:

    http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

    Hope this helps.

    It sounds like the bios detected the drive which led to booting the liveCD, but the lvieCD does not have drivers for the cd-rom device which lead it to fail loading the files from the disk when it attempted to mount them for interaction.
  • hi! Thank you For reply.... actually before i boot on usb i use unetbootin for Ubuntu 10.4 LTS Server then after that i use the usb to boot the PC then after that i follow the instruction and appear the error No Common cdrom drive Detect.. thats why i cannot install the Ubuntu 10.4 LTS server.. my other spec. processor is i5 then the memory is 2GB. i also try to download on torrent and website Ubuntu same error..theres any way i can follow to install this Ubuntu Server... thank you

    mfillpot maybe right that ubuntu does not have a driver for the cd-rom. What system are you installing it onm HP, ASUS?

    This maybe silly, but make sure that your cd-rom did not malfunction. Unplug it and re-connect it. Then verify that your bios can see it.

    Have you attempted to hit ESC during the boot splash screen to have it change to terminal mode? this will allow you to see all actions that your system is taking and review the output for additional errors.
